The low-temperature tempering was held after boriding at a temperature of 200[degrees]C to remove the internal stresses.
The titanium alloy structure may be a factor intensifying the boriding process, although there is no consensus about the nature of its impact on the process of diffusion saturation of alloys with interstitial elements.
Therefore, the titanium alloy quenching was conducted at 900[degrees]C, namely at the temperature of boriding.
Similarly to structure, the texture can also affect the intensity of the titanium alloys boriding process.
Textured factor can be used to intensify boriding in the formation of hardened layers based either on titanium boride, or on a solid boron solution in titanium.
Surface hardening of the alloys' layers after boriding occurs due to formation of the borated layer with the well-developed boride and diffusion transitional zones.
When boriding duration increases from 30 to 120 minutes, boride and diffusion zones are increased due to greater penetration of atomic boron deep into the alloy, as well as to the formation and growth of increasingly more amount of borides and increase of the diffusion zone (Fig.
